He was better than Boucher in that season, but the next year, Boucher put up similar numbers that Leighton did the year before. Volatility. The other 29 teams thought enough of him that given multiple chances to claim a supposed NHL goaltender off waivers, they all refused. The real reason the season turned around was because they finally had the system down pat. They changed coaches in the middle of the season, and that was the consequence. Leighton was simply in the right place at the right time.
